Some coaches will be happy this evening. Will Michigan St.'s Tom Izzo (who never appears to be happy) be one of them?

The last 2 games of the Elite 8 round of the NCAA Mens' Basketball tournament are on tap today, and they will round out this year's Final 4, with the winners of the East and South regionals determined.

CBS has the coverage, and if you are away from a tv, the games are also available via The NCAA's Tournament stream.

The East regional final from Syracuse, NY, pits 7-seed Michigan St. (26-11) against 4-seed Louisville (27-8) at 2:20 EDT (11:20 AM PDT). The showdown between the Spartans and Cardinal is the only "non-chalk" regional final of the day, with the 2 lowest seeded teams of the tournament meeting, which ensures this game will also send the lowest seeded member of the Final 4 forward.

Then, 2-seed Gonzaga (35-2) takes on 1-seed Duke (32-4) at 4:05 PM  (2:05 PM PDT) in Houston, to determine the South regional representative in Indianapolis. This is the showdown of the Pac-12 killers, after the 'Zags eliminated UCLA and the Blue Devils edged Utah Friday night.

The women start their Elite 8 round today as well, with the Greensboro and Oklahoma City Regionals to be decided.

2-seed Florida St. (32-4) takes on 1-seed South Carolina (33-2) at noon eastern (9 AM PDT) in the Greensboro Regional, and 2-seed Baylor (33-3) takes on 1-seed Notre Dame (34-2) at 7:30 PM locally (5:30 PM PDT) in Oklahoma City, as chalk held up in both regions.

Both games are on ESPN.

The Seminoles and Fighting Irish eliminated the Pac-12's last hopes, Arizona St. and Stanford, from the women's tournament Friday.

The other half of the women's Final 4 will be determined tomorrow evening, with the Albany, NY, and Spokane regionals.

Tournament Cinderella Dayton (28-6), the 7th seed and fresh off their upset of Louisville, takes on overall tournament top seed Connecticut (35-1) at 7 PM EDT (4 PM PDT) in Albany to start the double header.

2nd seed Tennessee (30-5) takes on 1-seed Maryland (33-2) at 6 PM PDT in Spokane to wrap up the weekend.

ESPN has both of Monday's games as well.
